I’m so sorry. ☹️ Remove the damage leaves using sterilized scissors. There could be several possible reasons:
πŸ’§Under or overwatering are possibility causes for yellowing or browning leaves. Before watering your plant use your index finger to determine if the top one inch ( first knuckle) of the soil is completely dry. The skin on your finger is a very sensitive and reliable moisture meter. The key to having a green thumb is having a brown finger. πŸ™ƒ Also, NEVER let your beautiful Bird’s nest fern sit in the excess water that came out of the drainage hole. Because that will cause your plant to become overwatered too.
β˜€οΈWas your plant expose to strong direct sunlight? That will also cause brown burnt edges on the leaves. The bright intense afternoon sun from a west facing window will burn this plant’s leaves. This plant will thrive in medium to bright indirect light.
πŸ₯Ά Was it exposed to the AC’s cold air flowing out of the air vent?
πŸ’¦ Do not water it with tap water, because the chlorine or fluorine can damage your plant.
▫️ This beautiful plant thrives in an high humidity environment . It may need a humidifier.
πŸ™ I hope your plant will make a speedy recovery.
Thanks for B.A. vote πŸ™
